where do you stand?

1) when is the new commodified:
a) at the moment of its conception
b) when air enters its lungs
c) after it leaves the hospital

2) which best describes your view of the sun:
a) there is nothing new under the sun
b) the sun is always new
c) there is no sun

3) The world is all that is the case
a) sometimes
b) always
c) you have no case

define your values:

a= at the moment of its conception there is nothing new under the sun. sometimes.

what is the value of a?

b= when air enters its lungs the sun is always new. always

what is the value of b?

c= after it leaves the hospital there is no sun. you have no case.

what is the value of c?

This is fabulous. I may ruminate on it over on my blog in a bit. Take care.

1) B -- commodification requires external forces to act upon an object ... A and C are essentially the same on a sliding scale of time

2) B -- this is a personal choice rooted in a philosophy that perception is all that really matters as one lives one's life ... in this sense, the sun is ever-changing because with the right equipment we can see the change take place

3) C -- once a child sees the sky, the world is never the same

a = a premise dying in a word

b = ostracizing the greys

c = roots in ground that can't be dug

The sun is a moment of its conception. Under the sun, the new is a hospital.

You have no case after it leaves the air for the world.

Where do you stand when the world enters its lungs?

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
